  • Tutorial request: Are there any guides on how to use Quixel Megascans with V-Ray ?

    Hi guys,

    Im trying to use the quixel megascans with V-Ray - I was wandering if you know of any tutorials or guides on how to use them?

    Thanks

    Not sure about tutorials/guides but is there any particular bit you're struggling with?

    IIRC you can export from the Megascans Bridge application straight in to 3DS Max with V-Ray materials.

      +1. Maybe there is straight export but the results are far from the ones I see on Megascan website.

        Hi guys
        I founds some good stuff here

        1. Corona forum Link
        https://corona-renderer.com/forum/in...83703#msg83703

        Really good stuff here, they talk about how to convert the secular maps to IOR maps using a LUT. - I cant download the LUT because the link is broken, does anyone have the LUT? - I cant ask for it on the corona forums as I dont have an account.


        2. Youtune Channel (Russian + English Sub)

        3. From Quixel Youtube Channel

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBiod9cQBPQ&t=210s


        So I got a full education on that for free! - But I dont understand the Corona thread.

        Questions

        Q1. Why Are people extracting the IOR from the Spec maps?
        Q2. Why Are the megascans looking a little different in V-Ray than they do in the Quixel Mixer?
        Q3. Is there a way to match exactly the data sets or is it already matched 1:1 ( I agree with urbanite, that the rendered results often look far from the assets as seen in Quixel mixer or on the website)
        Q4. Does V-Ray have the same IOR problem as seen in the Corona thread?


        Thanks

        Steve

          Tbh I've gotten pretty accurate results from the mixer/bridge to vray. I've mostly worked with surfaces. I just export to vray ggx.

            YEah its probably a another case of me going a bit too crazy. Ill just accept the results and stop questioning them.
